The Holidays JaM in Napa

The Holidays JaM in Napa

Looking for the festive spirit? Come JaM with us in Napa! 

Holiday Movie Nights - ongoing through the holidays. We start in November with Home for the Holidays, and nothing can stop us until the tree comes down! On the MUST list: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, Bad Santa, and The Ref. But we also love the modern classics... Home Alone, Elf, Love Actually, Christmas with the Kranks, and Scrooged. Now, all we need is peppermint popcorn, a cozy blanket, and our favorite Santa mug, full of Butter of course.

Friendsgiving - November 22nd. We’re hosting Friendsgiving, and you’re all invited. Come and join us and give thanks, JaM Cellars-style: music, prizes, classic Thanksgiving nibbles, plenty of Butter and JaM and of course a Toast or three. The person who brings the most friends wins wine pairings with their bites!

Ugly Christmas Sweater Party - December 9th. At last, your excuse to break that awful thing from out from the back of your closet. The best/worst sweater wins a full-size replica of the leg lamp from A Christmas Story, so dress to impress. There’ll also be JaM Cellars gift certificates, tastings and pairings, and holiday gift packs up for grabs.

Winter JaMSessions. Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean we’re slowing down around here. Check out our Holiday lineup every Thursday and Friday

NYE Brunch - December 31st. The last day of 2017 is a Sunday, and we need Brunch! and we do have the best wines for this very occasion. Do you want a little JaM with your Toast and Butter? Bottomless Toastmosas, a shortlist of brunch classics, and plenty of great raffle prizes. The best or worst New Year’s resolution will also win complimentary event space for a party in January!

Love is Thicker Than Smoke

This harvest, Mother Nature had a lot more in store for us than we had bargained for. Strong winds spread wildfires across our beautiful valleys here in Northern California wine country. The JaM team have emerged safe and well and within a couple days re-opened the wine and music studio to friends, neighbors, and visitors. We are grateful for your support and kind words on Facebook and feel more thankful than ever to be a part of this incredible wine community. For those that can join us Thursdays and Fridays for a JaMSession, we welcome you with open bottles! For those that can’t, pop open a bottle at home and tune into the JaM Spotify channel–we’ll be with you in spirit, or should we say... wine! Read on for our fave tips for enjoying Fall to its fullest.

Carpe Diem!

Love, JaM XOXO

5 Fave Hallo-wine Party Tricks

A little Butter, popcorn, and candy corn goes a long way!

JaMFans know how to throw a great party…so don’t let the idea of hosting haunt you! Here’s our shortlist of tips for an easy Hallo-wine bash…

1. A BUTTER THEME. Butter is irresistible, but you knew that already. Think Butterfinger, butterscotch, peanut butter cups, butter popcorn, salted butter caramels…and cool, creamy Butter Chardonnay. And the best part? We're now SUPER easy to find in your grocery store

2. DRESS UP. Keep your costume simple and easy-to-love, just like your JaM wines. We’re loving Pop Sugar's 70 Mind-Blowing DIY Halloween Costumes For Women!

3. DECORATE. We’re loving these LED lights that turn our empty bottles into spooky lanterns! Post a pic of your hallo-wine decor and tag us @JaMCellars on Instagram! 

4. JaM’s HALLO-WINE PLAYLIST. Yes, we did it, tunes for sipping, swaying and scaring away any party-poopers. You've got to love a little MJ, JT and Rockwell—dance like’s Somebody’s Watching You!

5. DOORSTEP JaM'n. Turn every trick or treat visit into a party on the front steps. Costume on, candy at the ready, The Zombies playing and to-go cups full of Butter for the grown-ups. Where there’s JaM, there’s a party waiting to happen.

The Voodoo Music + Arts Experience October 27th – 29th in New Orleans with Kendrick Lamar, Foo Fighters, and The Killers is the ultimate Halloween weekend...a musical gumbo stirring together great tunes, art, community, cuisine and all the mystery and adventure you’d expect NOLA to conjure up!

JaM’s in Napa and now Napa’s in JaM

A tiny release of our favorite JaM Cab, now with Napa grapes

We know you love us for our easy-to-love, everyday Californian wines, but just now and again we like to out-do ourselves. Grapes from across our beautiful state of Califonia will always be JaM’s first love, but for the next two weeks only, we’re releasing a tiny amount of JaM made with world-famous Napa Valley grapes to everyone on our mailing list. It’s a treat that feels like getting a second birthday half way through the year!

JaM Cellars started in Napa and hopefully you’ve visited our wine and music studio here in downtown Napa? (If you haven’t, please come soon!) Our little microclimate here in Napa makes for extra-complex, structured and rich wines, but of course we kept the big, bold, berry flavors that you love.

There’s not much JaM Cab Napa to go around and you won’t see it on store shelves. This wine is typically just for members of MyJaMClub and guests at JaM Cellars Napa, but for the next two weeks we’re making this tiny amount available to all JaMFans! Plus we’ll save a little bit for you to enjoy at BottleRock Napa Valley presented by JaM Cellars. Well, it’d be such a shame not to!

Can’t wait til BottleRock? Come to Napa for a JaMSession at our studio and taste this wine as part of our Napa flight for the full JaM Napa experience. Or make your own JaM night at home—grab a bottle or two of JaM Napa here and tune into to JaM Cellars on Spotify.

As always, you save at least 33% on ground shipping when you purchase any case of JaM wines, so go ahead and stock up before time runs out!

We’ve Fallen for Fall

6 Reasons We’ve Fallen for Fall

It’s hard to let go of summer, but we’ve cried enough and we’re ready to move on. And fall was right there waiting for us, cozy sweaters, fuzzy socks, pumpkin spice and all! Thank you fall for….

1. EARLY NIGHTS. Shorter days means wine o’clock comes earlier! When it’s really too cold for JaMming by the firepit, there’s Netflix’s fall lineup to pair with your favorite easy-to-love wine. Did someone say Jaws marathon??

2. RED, RED WINE. Come home to a dark, rich and luscious glass of JaM Cab to wine down on a cool autumn night. Light the fire and a couple candles and sink into the sofa…you deserve it.

3. FOOTBALL. Whether you’re a die-hard fan or only there for the food, football season brings everyone together. The conversations in the kitchen are just as much fun as the ones by the TV! We can’t decide whether we like Butter or JaM better with this three-cheese queso dip…guess we’ll have to try them both again. Hate it when that happens!

4. SIP' N' SMORE. S’mores are one of those things that help ease you out of summer into fall. Check out our nine favorite recipes for s’more inspiration this fall. We tested them and each one tastes just a little better with JaM wines, of course.

5. COZY SWEATERS AND FUZZY SOCKS. They take up so much room in the drawer, but we forgive them every year...there’s nothing like warm, soft and indulgently fluffy sweaters and socks on a chilly day. We’re jonesing after these Butter Slippers....and this cabernet sweater

6. FALL COLORS. The leaves will be changing color in the vineyards soon, blazing with JaM red and Butter yellow—the ultimate fall colors! Grab a few bottles and head somewhere to take in the fall foliage this year. Here are a bunch of great online tools and even an app to plan your leaf peeping. It’s an excellent excuse for a visit to JaM Cellars and taste our new JaM Cab Napa.

S’more Inspiration?

Need S’more Inspiration?

Sip 'n' Smore

We haven’t met a human yet who doesn’t love a good s’more… so it’s a great excuse to gather up your friends around the firepit during the first few days of fall. Our sip 'n' smore list is a creative twist on the classic and (surprise!) each one is perfect with JaM wines. Get creative, get competitive and tell us your favorite…

Lemon Meringue S’mores

Use lemon curd instead of chocolate for a tangy taste explosion! (For extra decadence, add white chocolate...mmm.)
Wine: Butter Chardonnay

Fluffernutter S’mores

Use crunchy peanut butter instead of (or in addition to) the chocolate.
Wine: Butter Chardonnay or JaM Cab – you cannot go wrong with this one.

Nutella Banana S’mores

Swap in Nutella for the chocolate, and add a few pieces of sliced banana. It’s amazing. Trust us!
Wine: Toast Sparkling

Bacon S’mores 

Add cooked bacon and a dash of hot sauce. YASSS!
Wine: JaM Cab

Sophisticated S’more 

Dark chocolate truffles, peppermint marshmallows, and organic graham crackers.
Wine: JaM Cab Napa, of course….

Coconut S’mores 

Swap in coconut marshmallows, and use a snack size Mounds bar instead of plain chocolate. Bonus points if you use a split macaroon instead of the grahams!
Wine: Butter Chardonnay

Pumpkin S’mores 

Add your favorite pumpkin butter (we love TJ’s – only available in the fall!) to dark chocolate, cinnamon graham crackers, and classic toasted marshmallow.
Wine: JaM Cab

Cookie Monster S’mores 

Swap in your favorite shortbread – Keebler Fudge Stripes, anyone? –  or any kind of buttery cookie for the graham crackers.
Wine: Butter Chardonnay

Stuffed S’mores 

Slip a Rolo or mini-Reese’s (or Thin Mint or whatever tiny candy you have) into the middle of the marshmallow before you toast it. The ultimate in gooey goodness!
Wine: Butter, JaM or Toast, depending on the stuffing.

Happy Toasting (yep, we just can’t help ourselves!)

Butter Ways for a Never Ending Summer

Summer, SLOW DOWN!

5 Ways to give Summer a Speeding Ticket

Is it just us, or does summer fly by WAY faster than the rest of the year? Well that’s not right, we’re just not having it. So, while we know we can’t actually issue summer a speeding ticket, here are some Butter ways to keep the summer going long past Labor Day. Take that summer!

  • Hit the store. Then the beach, the park, or your yard…break out a blanket or an air lounger (check these out!), crack open some cool, creamy Butter Chardonnay, and soak up every last ray of summer sun. It’s a crazy-comfy mini vacation (even just 15 or 20 minutes!) when you can at least pretend you have nothing to do. Yes. You. Can.

  • Just grill it. Your barbecue isn’t ready to give up on summer, either. Butter keep it simple—invite the neighbors, make it a potluck, pour rich, fruity JaM Cab with a burger, and turn up the JaMs. Plus we made a Summer JaMs playlist especially for you. Welcome.

  • Pack a picnic. Truth: food tastes better when you eat it outside. Doesn’t matter if it’s PB&J, deli sandwiches, or 101 creative 20-minute recipes like these… for a Butter picnic, just add chilled, fresh Butter (see what we did there?). Yep.

  • Backyard sleepover. Maybe you didn’t check camping off your summer to-do list this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t stargaze at home. Backyard sleepovers are a lot easier to plan for…stargazing maps, snacks, bugspray, JaM govinos (win a pair here!), and your favorite splash of wine…gazing at Venus makes us crave some velvety JaM Cab…yum.

  • Weeekday S’more Social. Some primal human cravings can’t be ignored---chocolate, fire, friends and competing for the most perfect S’more (here’s how). Just bust out the fire pit, the Jet-Puffed Jumbos, Hersheys, and graham crackers ‘cos the classic never disappoints. Wanna mix it up? Try these…and pick your favorite sip to go with it…dark chocolate plus the deep dark berries of JaM Cab, or creamy white chocolate with Butter Chardonnay? So good!

    We firmly believe that a never-ending summer is a Butter state of mind! Agree? #JaMWineTime
